#2 is in the books. A very long day of riding to catch up on some lost distance due to a very violent storm thru much of the center of the country. My original plan to ride thru the northern parts of the country are in the crapper. I can deal with a little rain, but the storms that were predicted and happened made me turn even further south to avoid mother nature. It was actually cool to start ,55 degrees, but it quickly warmed up as the day progressed. Oh and by the way Tennessee is one looooong state.
Day #3 Jackson Tennessee to Blackwell Oklahoma. Just about 700 miles of a mix of highway and yes, i actually used many back roads today. I ran into a huge traffic jam early this morning heading out of Memphis Tennessee. Luckily there was an exit just ahead. I weaved my way thru all of the trucks and found myself all alone on some very nice roadways. The weather was dry but it did get warm as is indicated by the picture of my g.p.s. that was taken at 7 p.m. I am a little more than 1/2 way there. Today was a full day of riding in the positive direction, no detours for the weather. Later.
